Dental Case Study

See how we started bringing a new dental practice 25 new patients a month.

Case Studies
How we brought a dentist more than 20 clients in one month.

We started working with a dentist in the local Tulsa, Oklahoma area. They were a relatively new practice and were looking to start bringing in customers regularly.

They had attempted to do a paid advertising campaign before, but they came up with less than appealing results. Before we started our campaign, we wanted to set some goals that we felt were achievable.

Goals Of The Campaign
  • They wanted to start bringing in at least 25 new patients a month.
  • We estimated they had a closing rate of 20%.
  • .
  • They could afford to pay up to $300 for a new lead. (However, our goal was it make it much less than that). We decided to start with a budget of $2,000 to spend on Google AdWords.
    Auditing Of The Account
    We first noticed when auditing the account that they were focusing on very broad-based keywords. These were keywords such as "Tulsa dentist" and "Tulsa, Ok dentist."

    While these keywords were bringing them a lot of impressions and clicks, they were hurting their quality score. Thus, the clicks that they were getting were quite expensive.

    We recommended focusing on situational dental circumstances such as broken teeth, tooth pain, and even dentures. Instead of just using Tulsa in their keyword search, we also recommended using the smaller cities within Tulsa, such as Sand Springs and Broken Arrow, to target their likely patients.

Keyword Research

Before determining which keywords to target, we did keyword research.While these situational circumstances related to dentistry will get fewer searches than some broad-based keywords, many of these searches are ready to go to the dentist right now. Thus, they are more willing to pick up the phone and set up an appointment than those doing broad-based searches.

An added benefit to these situational dentistry search terms is they are typically much cheaper than the broad-based terms, thus making them more cost-effective. You target potential patients who are willing to buy dental services right now than those just browsing.

Building Custom Landing Pages

When targeting smaller cities within a larger town and a dental situation, you are better off building custom landing pages for each town and condition.

These landing pages will often produce higher conversation rates because the focus is on social proof. You can also create several different landing pages and see which one converts the best.

They also lower the cost-per-click because you can improve the campaign's quality score with a different landing page for each keyword. For example, you can reduce the campaign cost by 30% if you improve the quality score from a 7 to a 10.

When you focus on dental situations while at the same time focusing on the smaller cities within a larger city, this will make improving the quality score of the campaign much easier to do.

Preparing the launch

Installing conversation tracking codes is the next thing before launching a campaign. Running an AdWords campaign with no tracking is pretty much a waste of time.

Preparing a negative keyword list is also very important if you audit a campaign. If anything, you want to take that list and expand upon it.

When setting up ad groups, they should be based on particular circumstances, and the keywords should be even more specific.

Improving the Campaign

The ultimate goal is to find out what keywords are making the most money and move all your resources to those keywords.

There are times when 50-70% of the keywords you are targeting in a campaign will not produce leads. After running those keywords for at least two months, it will be time to eliminate them from the campaign.

We are also improving ads and landing pages; this is where A/B testing will come into the picture. We will find what landing pages and ad text is converting the most while targeting potential patients ready to buy.

We started out getting leads for this dentist at $50 a lead the first month, then we decreased the cost down $25 a lead the second month, then by the end of the third month, we were bringing in leads for this dentist at between $15 and $20 a lead.
